My shower was amazing! So many generous people...not a single hitch! Instead of writing a novel about it, I'll just share with pictures...
Bridesmaids: Erin, Christina, Amanda, ME, Stephanie (sister-Maid of Honor), Kristina (sister), and Amy
My ribbon bouquet! Nice work Amanda and Christina!
The only thing in this room pre-shower was the chair in the corner
Part of the gift from my sisters...a breakfast tray :)
We are still trying to get organized from the shower. The kitchen seems much smaller now than it used to!
What a bunch of drama. Everything is fine with my dress, in fact I had my first fitting last week and it doesn't even need to be hemmed! It fits perfectly and I am soooo happy with it! The drama has been with my bridesmaids dresses...they are huge! So when we met with the alterations lady at the salon, she was a complete bitch and was basically telling me that they couldn't be altered the way I wanted them. I wasn't asking her to recreate the dress, I was simply asking for them to look how they're supposed to look! Anyway...long story short I could only put up with her attitude for about 30 minutes...and then I had a breakdown. Yep I had a bridezilla moment and yelled and cried in the middle of the salon :) At the time we left, there was no resolution and the woman was still being a bitch. Tomorrow we have an appointment with another alterations woman from the salon and she thinks she has a solution that will please me. But if not, we are just going to have them altered elsewhere.
I realized that I never posted any pics of the furniture. Nothing else has changed inside the house at all....still white walls and no blinds :) I think our neighbors are enjoying seeing what we are watching on tv and watching me kick butt at rock band!
We still haven't found coffee table/end tables that we like, so the ottoman just kinda moves around between the two pieces

We still haven't met with our PM for our "30 day" walkthrough. It's now been 2 months since we've closed. I talked to our neighbor yesterday and he hasn't had his meeting yet either. We don't have any urgent issues, but still....it seems like we should have met already!
The wedding is now less than 6 weeks away and boy is the to-do list getting large! I have appointments tomorrow, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday....and appointments next week...too much to do! I just can't wait until June 2nd when school is over for the summer and I can finally have some time to get things done!
